Buying Souvenirs While Traveling
Purchasing souvenirs for your friends and family can be one of the most
exciting aspects of your vacation. Wherever your travels take you, you
may find yourself eager to find the perfect souvenir for a friend or
family member. When you are excited about purchasing these souvenirs
it can be a very fun experience. However, if you feel obligated to purchase
souvenirs for a large group you may feel a tremendous amount of pressure
to find just the right souvenir for each person on your list and you
may also feel pressure to buy a unique gift for each person. When this
happens, it turns the fun occasion of purchasing souvenirs for loved
ones into a stressful situation that is filled with anxiety. There are
some tips, however, that can make purchasing souvenirs a really fun
One excellent tip for buying souvenirs for your loved ones when you
are traveling is to keep their specific tastes in mind. You may see
items that you thing are very cute but you have to consider the feelings
of the recipient of the souvenir. Chances are that you know everyone
on your souvenir list pretty well or you wouldn’t be going to the trouble
of purchasing gifts for them while you travel so you should have a pretty
good understanding of what they will like. With each potential souvenir
purchase, look at the item carefully and ask yourself what the recipient
will think of this item. This will help you to decide whether or not
to purchase the item.
Another tip for buying souvenirs is to not get caught up with thinking
that you need to purchase a unique gift for each person. While it is
nice to make sure that the gifts that you purchase for each person on
your list there is no reason why the same gift may not be appropriate
for more than one person on your list. For example if several people
on your list collect souvenir spoons and you find a great one during
your vacation that you think they would all like, go ahead and buy one
for each of them. As long as it is a gift that they will appreciate,
they won’t care if you gave the same item to another person.
Searching for souvenirs throughout your trip instead of shopping desperately
for them at the conclusion of your trip can help to ease the stress
of purchasing souvenirs. Chances are you will be doing quite a bit of
shopping on your vacation anyway so as you visit different shops; keep
the people that you would like to buy souvenirs for in mind and purchase
souvenirs as you find them instead of waiting until the last minute.
Finally remember that you are under no obligations to purchase souvenirs
for anyone. It is easy to get caught up in finding the perfect souvenir
for a long list of friends and family members but if you just can’t
find something that seems right for a particular person, try sending
them a postcard from your destination instead of buying something for
them just for the sake of buying something.
Purchasing souvenirs for friends and family members while you are on
vacation can be fun as long as you don’t get overwhelmed by the pressure
to buy a perfect and unique gift for everyone. If you do choose buy
gifts for a few people, you should try to choose items that will appeal
to them instead of gifts that you like.

I get free airline tickets & travel on a shoestring
Cheapest fares are always found online.
Wrong. Many of the wholesale airline contracts are prohibited
from being marketed on a website. If you're only searching Expedia,
Orbitz, Travelocity and the like, you're not seeing all the
really discounted fares that are available.
Buying direct from the airlines is good.
Wrong again. You just eliminated the possibility of buying a
consolidator airfare, which is almost always cheaper than anything
the airlines offer, and, the cheapest airfare are sold
only by travel agencies.
The airlines sell off unsold seats cheap at the last minute.
This myth can cost you big time or the cancellation of your
plans if you're not willing to pay the exorbitant price the
airlines want to extort from you. Believing this myth proves
you have no clue about the airlines' distribution system.
